“They had these little roaches on the table, these part-way-smoked marijuana cigarettes, and there was some Schlitz Malt Liquor Bull,” Snoop said.
“I went in there and sipped the Schlitz, and my uncle asked me did I wanna hit that roach. And I was like, ‘Yeah.’ He put it on the roach clip for me and lit it up, and I hit that motherf***er. I was about eight or nine years old.”
Just last month Snoop appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live and detailed his wide range of drug connections across the globe.
“Well, last time I checked I was the plug to your plug,” Snoop said. “I’m the connect. It’s good to have friends that have friends that are international and global and able to get you medicated and dedicated no matter where you at.”
Pop megastar Ed Sheeran also recently detailed getting dangerously high with Snoop in a dressing room in Melbourne, Australia.
“We’d had a good amount of conversation, so I have a bit, and I’m like, ‘I don’t feel too bad, this is good’,” Sheeran recalled. “So I have a bit more, I have a bit more, I have a bit more.
“Oh my god, I just remember looking at him and being like, ‘I can’t see right now!’”
Snoop even had a “full-time blunt roller”, a woman named Renegade Piranha who the Drop It Like It’s Hot rapper said was paid about $50,000 a year to prepare his marijanua cigarettes.
But there were also signs he was re-evaluating his lifestyle.
In March he told the MailOnline he was moderating his weed consumption after becoming a grandfather.
“Being a grandfather has changed me in multiple ways,” Snoop said. ‘The main way is being concerned with how I live, how I move, the kind of people I’m associated with, because I want to see my grandkids grow old.
“The only way I can do that is to take precautionary steps as far as how I move, who I hang out with, where I go out, my intake, what am I intaking?
“Am I doing extra-curricular or am I just doing what I’m supposed to be doing?”
